BENGUET’S legislative caretaker on Monday, March 30, donated P2.5 million worth of personal protective equipment (PPEs) to health workers at the Benguet General Hospital.

Representative Eric Go Yap of the Anti-Crime and Terrorism Community Involvement and Support (ACT-CIS) Party-list said the medical equipment and supplies were provided to ensure the safety of the health workers in Benguet in battling Covid–19.

“Sila ang ating frontliners, sila ang unang humaharap para makontrol at maiwasan ang pagkalat ng Covid – 19. Hindi naman natin hahayaan na wala silang tamang kagamitan at panangga laban sa sakit na ‘to,” Yap said.

The donation includes hazmat suits, thermal scanners, surgical gloves, face masks, N95 masks, goggles, alcohol, and acylic boxes. With the Covid-19 crisis, these are the supplies most needed by hospitals.

“We know the risks that they are exposed to, as they attend to our patients. Malaki ang tungkulin na ginagampanan nila para masiguro na gagaling ang pasyente at para tiyakin na hindi kakalat ang Covid – 19 sa ating komunidad,” Yap added.

“Lubos ang ating pasasalamat para sa kanilang serbisyo at sakripisyo. As they have always protected us, it is also our duty to give them protection - by providing them the means to fight this pandemic,” Yap further said. (SunStar Baguio)
